government is actually capable of doing? i mean, you talk about the economy and jobs. there is, obviously, debate how many jobs have actually been created in the economy. look. you pointed out to apple ceo, tim cook was in the audience in the state of the union. he is sitting on over 171 million dollars in cash at apple. why? because uncertainty in the marketplace. tom friedman writing this morning something that caught my eye. he said you can feel the economy wants to launch but washington is sitting on the national mute button. we the people feel like the children of permanently divorcing parents. how does this sequestered business end? the president said during the campaign the sequester, the word for automatic spending cuts, he said it would not happen. is it going to happen? >> i always read tom friedman he has that good minnesota sensibility. >> you guys stick together. >> we do. the column today i think is continuation of that. frankly, i believe it's a continuation of exactly the plan the president laid out in detail in the state of the union on tuesday night. we have already made

the state of the economy, he probably should have lost and he won not just because of mitt romney's inadequacies, but because he built the finest political organization in recent american history with more than 1 million volunteers. >> you share that in common with barack obama. his hometown of chicago. your hometown is chicago. >> i met barack obama in 2002 and at that time he had just lost for the house of representatives. he told me when we first met when my aunt had died and he came over to pay respects to my cousin's house. he said he was going to run for the u.s. senate. i remember thinking, wow, that's a lot of nerve. he just lost for the house and he is running for the senate? yes, i knew him and i knew a lot of the people around him in chicago for many years because i grew up in chicago politics. my mother was a politician. my mother new barack obama in the '80s. so, you know, in some ways i'm familiar with the political environment that he came out of and i think that, you know, it's giving me a little bit more insight going back with these folks for quite a long period
, patriotic smugglers during the colonial war during this time in this country there are existing economies between good and bad. it was alluded to a moment ago by pat in her comments a moment ago. it feigns dynamism. it reminds you that what is forgotten now may not always be so. the impermanence of what is forgotten. it is an antidote to naturalizing things. how things are, how they will be, and how they should be. how the book challenges us, well, we have many episodes of demonization and also what we might call dehumanization or purification. these are very telling because it sheds a light on who gets to define what is permitted and what is not. based on the power to define what is legal and what is not. in the book it talks about before the revolution and in the late 19th and early 20th century, we saw the purity crusader, his name was anthony. he was responsible for being against illicit images and condoms being illegal. this is all forms of contraception including commons are legal. including the issuance of condoms for u.s. soldiers and etc. i will deconstruct the incompletion voyeu
that is effectively transferring money from savers to prop up these banks. that's the real impact to our economy. that's why pension funds are in trouble. it's a real fundamental problem here. >> but we can put on the table both you experts. we've got a senator from massachusetts who is should we say unspoiled and ready to do the work of the people on the banking committee. fair enough? >> absolutely. >> it's going to be fun. martin smith, david cay johnston, great to have you with us tonight. >>> remember to answer tonight's question there at the bottom of the screen. share your thoughts with us on twitter and at ed show on facebook. we want to know what you think. >>> ten years ago, the bush administration lied us into a war. rachel maddow and david corn are here to preview their new special that will make you really look at this story in a whole new different way. stay with us. >>> hans blix reported that his teams found no weapons inspection and sees sign iraq is starting to cooperate. in a further slap at powell, blix contradicted u.s. intelligence that issue has hidden weapons interest the inspe
and a lot of damage to the economy. but because it's slower moving, there seems to be less impetus to get a deal done before the march 1st deadline. you're hearing maybe this would all be wrapped up and the continuing spending resolution, if that's not solved by the end of march could result in a government shutdown. there seems to be posturing for negotiating all at once, some time in march. looks like it's possible we'll go past the sequester. >> didn't the gop agree to the sequester deal? and if the gop wanted to stop it, they could have. how do you assess blaming the president for the sequester? >> i'm not sure that's really working out for them because it's true that both sides agreed to this. and now the president is saying, okay, i agreed to this but let's do something about it. the whole idea of the sequester is it would be such a bad thing that neither party would want to go through with it. we can disagree with the logic of even setting this up. but it is true that if you're the party that's refusing to do the negotiation, i think you're the one that looks bad. the fact that bot
change that perception. let's focus on a reality. by reality i mean economy of our political system. this correction has its own economy. the economy as two components. one is an economy of stop, and the other is the economy of extortion. the economy of stop drives us to point to andho instability in our government. any system where the tiniest slice of the public dominates in the funding produces a system where a tiny number of americans can effectively block any change. it will always be that or at least almost always be that in the context where some much dependence exists on such a tiny number of participants. it is just a couple thousands who have to band together with these contributions to effectively make it possible that in our structure of separated powers you can block any change. this is an economy that depends on polarization. people point to polarization as the cause. it is an effect. it depends on the dysfunction, because the more dysfunctional the institution is, the easier it is to sell this opportunity to block. this function is the business model, which is what a
-the-board cuts. >> please, i would like to finish what i'm saying here. 750,000 jobs will be lost. the economy will shrink by 6%, and what we've produced is very simple. it's closing loopholes. the only people who support them are the people who benefit them from them, oil and gas loopholes, the idea that businesses shouldn't get breaks by sending jobs overseas, the idea that someone who makes over $1 million should pay a higher rate than others, and whether it's right on the eve of sequestration or if god forbid it has to take effect for a few days, the devastating effects will be so strong. the president will be out there on his bully pulpit that just like on the fiscal cliff republicans will come on board. they have no choice. their arguments are untenable and don't meet the favor of hardly anyone other than themselves and the few whose special interests they are protecting. >> let me move you on to immigration simply because we now see the white house sort of draft immigration bill, at least the skeleton of it, has been leaked out there. we know that democrats had been saying to the white
to be a great and optimistic sense and serious prh an economy that has been stripped of its industrial base and facing international competition. we have environmental problems, just as problems, all of these things in the bond that we can create. that is the essence of patriotism they were figuring out ways to set in motion these freedoms that strengthen everyone and increase the economy and the ties that bind and a convert to be able to sit here tonight. we need to be able to do it again, and in order to do that, we have to have a better sense. because our history is not just about where we sat in the steel. our history is about our future and what tools we will use to build strength across the alliance. it is not often that we misremember these relations that are involved. i think we should be ashamed of doing it on the left and right. a lot in the civil rights movement turned against their own example. that includes people in the civil rights movement, the most powerful idea was the first one that was abandoned. there were a lot of other religions as well. the law turned against religio

sanctions been on iranian behavior. >> well they certainly affected the economy, had a huge effect on the economy and led to the devaluation of the iranian currency. but it's an excellent question because there's some talks coming up now in kazakhstan of all places in late february involving the eu, the united states and the iranians. and so this is going to be a venue in which people are going to be able to see to a certain extent how serious iran is about negotiating on limits on its nuclear program. there hasn't been negotiations for some significant period of ti. and this is an opportunity to test the iranians. i think this initial round is not going to prove much but certainly over the next six months, i think there will be an ample opportunity to see if there is an intent on the iranian part to reach some sort of compromise. >> rose: leon panetta and others have said the following. we have no information that there's been a decision on the part of the iranian government and the most influential people there to builds a nuclear weapon and a missile that will deliver it. what
are not smart. they're not fair. they will hurt our economy. they will add hundreds of thousands of americans to the unemployment rolls. this is not an abstraction. people will lose their jobs. the unemployment rate might pick up again. >> i will denight president -- i will deny the president -- >> stephanie: boner said washington democrats new found concern about the president's sequester -- he's clever how he keeps calling it -- [ ♪ hypnotic ♪ ] >> obama quester. >> stephanie: social media boys and i came up with that over bourbon. >> and you can tell! >> obama quester. >> stephanie: rolls off the tongue. words alone won't avert it. replacing the president's sequester. there it is again in the second sentence. >> obama quester. hashtag. do you see the hashtag first or after? >> stephanie: i'm doing boner. >> but you probably didn't know either. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: i was mocking him for something -- is this where we break or no? >> yes. good lord. >> stephanie: replace the president's sequester will require a plan to cut spending to put us back on the path to a budget to keep the
in second? caller: that would be clinton with the economy. he picked up the economy and we had a surplus. host: who wood your parents have said? caller: probably fdr, because he helped everybody, like social security and when there was no work, he helped people find work, came up with programs to help them get work. i'm not sure what it was called because i was not keeping up with it back then. all these programs became up with to help the working man. host: you remember your parents talking about this? caller: i do. host: how did they view government back then? caller: before he helped them, they probably gave it a 0 rating. host: francis, tennessee, republican caller. george washington? caller: correct. because he started the country, made the constitution were initially. before that, and he was the first in war, the first increase. he was a good and virtuous man and set an example for the rest of the president's to follow. host: what example is that? caller: he served two terms and stepped down. he advocated for a long time, people staying out of foreign entanglements. host: who would
of civil society, the economy itself, and the states, depend on that kind of maturity but cannot themselves provided. as well as the stabling commitment of a mother and father. that is what gets the state involved in marriage. it is the social need to promote the stabilizing norms. it is those very stabilizing norms that i say are undermined in principle, and then over time, in practice, as we internalize the idea that marriage is just companionship, that it has no more internal requirements and companionship does, which is a very broader category. note what this highlights. this suggests that, if the norm of sexual complementarity is arbitrary, just a traditional holdover, then so is permanence. so is exclusivity. so is monogamy. why do i say that? very often people say, we can cross those bridges when we get there. you do not have to worry today about polyamorous relationships and so on. i think the logic of those positions does not allow that answer. the logic of their position is that what makes a marriage's emotional union is arbitrary, requiring sexual commentary, which is not essenti
by one. number one, chapter one. earth inc, a new interconnected, global economy that operates as if it is a single entity. we've been seeing the outsourcing of jobs, and we've been seeing the connection of the supply side, and now we have virtual factories with supply lines running to hundreds of countries and almost every business has to see its competitive landscape in the global dimension. earth inc.has a different relationship to national government and national economic policies now, a different relationship to labor and capital and natural resources, the three classic factors of production. look, for example, one of the changes that illustrates this new really of effort inc. , and normally after a recession when we get a recovery and growth resumes, the jobs come back, and that's the way it's always been, but in the last couple of recessions, it had not happened that way because we now have this gloanl reality, and -- global reality, and some businesses that lay people off in the recession, they are not hiring them back the way they used to. some of them, yes, but we now
soon enough. we have more from hanoi. >> reporter: vietnam's economy is racing ahead. but not everybody is moving forward. streets in hanoi are full of cars and motor bikes. across the country, factories pour harmful substances into the environment. this river running through the capital is dangerously contaminated. harmful chemical readings are 30 times higher than the maximum alould allowed by the government. people living down stream are suffering the consequences. this man and his wife while born and raised in this village. they are farmers who survive by growing rice and other crops. his legs are the result of years walking in the rice patties. a government investigator told him chemicals are in the water to blame. >> translator: the water i fill my patties with is black. my legs itch from working in the rice fields. water shouldn't be black. but i have no choice but to use that terrible water for farming. >> reporter: he worries about pollution. a new deal originating in japan is gaining public attention. the japan international cooperation agency is encouraging japanese companies
it happen for more people. we are growing our economy now. we are creating international markets for our san francisco-made products. we are strongly encouraging our neighborhoods to be clear and accessible to different cultures. and when they are, they will make things that we have never seen before. discover things we haven't had. and then we have international forums upon which to talk about it, brag about it. communicate and to exchange. whether education or to sell products and services. this makes the world even better and more closely tied. i am proud that we have the celebration that we celebrate lunar new year. and explain every year what the differences might mean with the different zodiac animals we celebrate. but in each and every one of those there is a lesson of life to see and visit and compare ourselves to and improve upon. and i would say that san francisco with the help of the people on the stage. as well as you in the audience, you are always helping to improve the city for the next generation. i look forward to 2013 being not only the mini-dragon, but the year that we get
